      A lot depends on your Preference Settings &amp; how many Projects you are attached to at one time. Also how many Work Units you already have from those Projects &amp; how much Resource Share you are giving each Project ...

        I've got 4 LHC and 4 Seti for 10 days!
        ...i crunch them in 1 day!
        I got 6x more of Predictor than of SZTAKI!

        1 SZTAKI-WU is finished in half an hour!

        Sorry, but my opinion about the new scheduler: shit

                Since this project wants results back in about 4 days, you must set prefs to connect less than 4 days.

                    No, you can set your connect time to be about a day, and that should get more than one WU.

                      This is mostly a misunderstanding of the new scheduler... in my opinion. In the past the setting for 'days between connects' was a way to stockpile work units (WUs) but there was nothing to prevent you from getting more than you could return in time to get credit for them. The new scheduler is MUCH smarter about running multiple projects and keeping you from not getting credit by returning them late. So, this setting is now considered when deciding if you can return a WU in time BEFORE downloading it. I also believe Resource Share will affect the LongTermDebt(LTD) calculations, which in turn can affect downloading of new WUs also.

                      The 'days between connects' is also a factor (if I remember correctly) in determining if it needs to go into "short deadline first" mode.

                      I think you will find that the newer cc works much better with much shorter 'days between connects'. I have been using .7 days for some time now and once the scheduler has a week or two to balance everything out it works QUITE well. I now always have 2 to 5 WUs for every project (except CPDN, just 1, as it should be) and everything (E@H especially) always get back in time, even on my very slow machines.

                      I hope this is of some help to you.

                      PS: [Shameless Plug ;-)] You can use BoincDV to see what your STD and LTD are at any given point in time.

                        Thanks for the info!

                        but:
                        I cannot understand why ~7days are "better" for the new scheduler than 10 days.
                        in my opinion 10 days are a longer time than 7 or 4 days, so i had to get more work!
                        ?!?!?

                        I don`t know how to say it in english, but my brain told me something like "jkhztvfjztdfki94n?! Nfddefs?"

                          &gt;
                          The logic used by BOINC is that if you say you will connect next in 10 days a wu that wants to be back in 4 days will be overdue and maybe a waste of CPU time. Better not download says BOINC. It is smart enough to give you 1 wu. Consider it a gift.

                            LOL!

                            as long as it's a free gift...

                            Yesterday, unfortunately an old harddisk crashed and died for ever.

                            Very happy to had a Queue (connect every..) of only 1.9 Days.

                            So I "only" wasted about 54 work units, what I'm very sorry for.

                            This is not like other projects with a lot of anounced and not anounced downtimes, even a connect every 0.4 Days can be used without running out of work.

                            Crossing all fingers, but this project is running really stable in the last 2 Weeks or so.
                            This is a good omen;)

                                except the problem of the failure of the hd at the beginning, pretty stable project.
                                no problem with the CC 4.32 and the 4 others projects (3 official and 1 beta) running on my machine under Win98SE.
                                the next step : a screensaver ?

                                  BOINC 4.32 was a bit buggy, I would suggest that you move to 4.45.

                                    What CC is the best among the 4.3x ?
                                    A different scheduler is in the CC since the 4.35, the 4.36 or the 4.37 ?

                                      I don't remember exactly, but the new scheduler went into effect with 4.35.

                                        Thks for your answer :)
                                        I noticed that the behaviour of the CC 4.35 was "a little" different.
                                        Since i have no problem with the 4.32 (for now) and it's working for me like i want, i will keep it.
